Seven Seas Computers claims it is among the first systems integrators in the Middle East to attain the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 9001:2008 accreditation, which is regarded as an endorsement of commitment to world-class quality standards and service.

The Dubai-based outfit was awarded the certification following a two-stage recertification audit by industrial service provider Vincotte International Middle East. The process also included a rigorous assessment of Seven Seas' quality management system (QMS) policies, procedures and systems.

Nayagam Pillai, CEO at Seven Seas, called the accreditation a "milestone" for the company. He said: "We decided it was imperative to focus on getting recertified to the new standard in order to engrain an evolved ‘quality' culture within the company and incorporate best practices in compliance with ISO standards."

Efforts to meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 began with the appointment of a core ISO team and the training of staff on the new standard after it was announced last year.

Seven Seas delivers technology solutions and services around business software, data networking, security, and enterprise and high availability. It partners with a number of technology vendors including HP, IBM, Microsoft, CA, Cisco, Juniper, Symantec and BT Syntegra.

The company employs more than 350 professionals, with 270 based in the UAE.
